business in america, which we will do. there's an argument there, that's true. i don't think proprietary trading caused the crisis, but there are problems with it. we have not just had the problems of the crisis. we've had problems of individual investors and others not being treated fairly. paul volcker, who is certainly no enemy of wall street, has been the one most concerned about the proprietary trading. and we're talking about saying, if you have a deposit insurance guarantee with the federal government, you shouldn't be using that to help do this proprietary trading. the other thing we say is this, i don't want the banks making their money from this kind of trading and investments. i want them to make their money by loans. to some extent, this is aimed at getting the banks more into the lending business, which frankly they've moved away from too far. >> the other critique of this, i've heard, is that it basically targets mainstream banks, where most americans have an account with bank of america, a citibank, jpmorgan chase, wells fargo. it does not get after the issue of the too bi
they spent years waiting for the french to invade again. second, there were i'm in america that didn't want to recognize them, because they felt threatened, they felt slavery threatened in america. then the abuses they from outside began to be repeated inside by the haitian leaders themselves. over time, between inside and outside abuse and neglect, the country just never recovered its footing. but i will say this, they've been making steps toward democracy for nearly 20 years now. democracy has been interrupted twice and restored, once when i was president again with the restoration of president val about to finish his term. we -- president preval about to finish his term. we are going to have a transfer of power when his period of service is up. the important thing for the american people to know is that, i've been going down there since december of 1975, when hillary and i took a delayed wedding trip there. in my lifetime this is the best chance the haitians have had to build a modern, successful state. we had an investment conference there, 600 people came from latin america, car beane,

>>> good morning, america. on this monday, january 18th, i'm george stephanopoulos. >> and i'm robin roberts. this morning, surviving in haiti. six days after the earthquake, people are getting desperate. amid the chaos there's hope as rescue teams pull victims alive from the rubble. we are live in haiti. >>> also, breaking news in afghanistan. taliban launch an attack right in the capital. >>> and president obama's big test. he scrambles to save ted kennedy's seat for the democrats and keep his health care bill alive. >>> and the golden globe awards. all the glitz, all the glamour was there. plus, a serious note, as hollywood comes through for haiti. >>> hello again, on this martin luther king day. it is so good to have you back. >> it is odd, feels odd to be back here, but great to be back home. george, the pictures do not adequately convey and indicate, really what the destruction and devastation is like there in haiti. >> they never really do video as close to the tragedy. it also cleans it up a little bit. >> it does. >> the relief effort has stepped up, already 1,000 tr
a substantial drug culture. america uses more over-the-counter prescription and elicit drugs than any other nation on earth, and we are a high society in that regard. when we look at sports which are competitive, the rewards have escalated phenomenally and the awards for achievement have escalated monetarily and in terms of social status, and inevitable that people would begin to use performance-related drugs in order to achieve the awards. that was not only predictable, but inevitable. >> are we now at the point where the most important person of an athlete's life is not the mama or daddy or coach, but the pharmacist now. have we relied on the drugs to get the edge? is that still the directional we are going? >> well, we are still in that mode. every time something is added to the list of prohibited drugs, you have people with chemistry backgrounds who are the organizational ability to create a stealth drug beneath the radar that somebody is going to use, because the rewards are just that great. also, the drugs are viral which is to say that once somebody uses the drug and their statistic
anything but to help protect america. >> by the way, this statement by brennaman is the very way this president leads. a number of times he has taken responsibility, said he is sorry, and moved on. and we've been often jarred by that. >> ironically, he will actually gain more political stature doing that, than by blaming george w. bush. it doesn't make a lot of sense, but at this point, when the white house blames george w. bush for anything, even if they have a good argument it makes them look small when they say, hey, the buck stops with me. doesn't it make the president seem more confident. it makes him seem like more of a leader. >> two quick things about that, joe. one a lot of people are sick about all of the references to the bush administration. it's over. it was a year ago. move on. that's in the rear view mirror. i was reminded about my conversation with a top-ranking national security official and it gets to the volume of threats. >> oh, yeah. >> i mean, just the sheer volume of threats that these people have to handle, administer and make decisions on each and every d
's the responsibility the world, not especially of america. >> that's their country. maybe we have stepped in too much. >> i think the u.s. is spread a little thin. >> i don't know if it's stretched too thin. i i had there is always going to be conflicts, especially in that part of the world. >> i think we have an obligation to speak out and use diplomatic efforts to step in military airily any time there is something like that going on. it's really not justified. >> we should try to help other countries. but i still maintain the fact that we should do better here as well. >> reporter: i'm joe carter and i'll see you on the street. >> and you'll see more of joe carter. so if you see him and he asks you a question, tell him what you think. >>> american politics reels from a supreme court ruling. critics say the justices just unleashed a flood of corporate money into the process. is this the price of free speech? your views just ahead. >>> reaction to the supreme court's decision on campaign finance has been sharp and bitterly divided. >> the bottom line is this -- the supreme court has just predetermin
anything, do you think? >> well, becky, i think we're seeing in what goldman is doing, what bank of america is doing some sign that these bank executives are conscious, they're listening, they're reading the newspaper, they're getting the idea that they're behind the eight ball in terms of public opinion. they're trying to react. but of course, they have to balance the interest of their people and their need to keep talent which is the argument that they've been making. so yes, i think they are on notice and they ought to be on notice, given the nature of this election year that they're going to be in the spotlight not just this month or next month, but throughout 2010. >> where does health care stand, john? there are a lot of things going on, but we're not hearing anything. >> this is not a joint statement. >> this is very interesting, guys. they had an eight-hour meeting at the white house yesterday. now, everybody has been assuming this thing was going to kind of float along for the month and get done at the end of the month. but you could see yesterday the determination of the president
there have moved to america, especially new york city -- >> and 45,000 americans live there. >> if you're in miami, it's your neighbor, and that's part of the reason the administration wants to be sure they did this right. you can't mess this up. the news reports yesterday were focused on the death toll. this morning, we're learning 3 million haitians need relief. >> the death toll could rise dramatically if aid is not distributed in some way. i'm not sure they are able to do it. politically, i am wondering what you make of this. every time the president heard the response, the word katrina comes up. is this the president's genuine reaction to what is an international tragedy? is it fair to say that it's only political? >> no, i think katrina is a reminder to the press, government, everyone, of what can go wrong and it reminds everyone not only do you need to be on top of it to air on the side of overreacting, but also show people what you are doing. >> by the way, george bush senior had problems with hurricane andrew, a slow response. we in northwest florida were really glad that the
soul. it will remain that we take revenge for his death for america and outside america. it is a trust on every person who left everything for the sake of god that he supported. >> you heard him refer to a couple of times, the head of the taliban that was killed last summer in an attack. a drone attack. now, we're going to have a live report from our senior international reporter nic robertson on this. and he is a couple minutes away. >>> well, the young man authorities say tried to blow up a northwest airlines plane on christmas day says he is not guilty. umar farouk abdulmutallab is accused of trying to blow up a plane in detroit. >> the 23-year-old new york jig faces federal charges. more on the suspect's brief court aappearance. >> arriving at federal court, abdulmutallab walked into the courtroom slowly and with apparent difficulty. the alleged christmas day suicide bomber having suffered second and third-degree lap burns after detonating explosives hidden in his underwear. standing borrow the judge, his feet were shackled, his white t-shirt and khaki pants too big for his thin fr

america and if you'd like one at your house, we will arrange to have total strangers come to your house and eat all of your doritos. >> and he's a fan of using reconciliation to still jam health care through. are these deals actually happening right now as the president of the united states is making that interview and saying that he made a mistake in not being transparent? are those deals still happening with regard to health care? you have to be on the judge on that depending on how it all plays out. >> he was also -- he went on to talk about now he's going to put himself as the champion of the middle class. he blames the huge deficit on war spending that wasn't paid for, prescription drug plan that he claims it wasn't paid for and the stimulus plan he absolutely needed so here's president obama on the prospect of raising taxes. would he go back on that pledge for those making less than $250,000? >> can you guarantee them still, there will be no taxes on anybody who makes under $250,000 a year? that will still be absolutely true? >> i can guarantee that the worst thing we could do w
